While the weather outside right now might be a little temperamental, we can confirm it’s still officially summer. With summer comes long nights on the beach, cocktails and of course our favourite summer dresses, we’re gonna run you through some of our top summer dresses and how to style them for any occasion.

Slip Dresses

 
First up on our list is a huge current favourite, the slip dress. Blurring the lines between lingerie and actual outwear, slip dresses are the ideal candidate for throwing on and getting out the door. Add some trainers, sunnies and your favourite vintage sweatshirt for an easy cute outfit to get your morning coffee. Alternatively, throw on some slinky heels and a baguette bag for an effortless date night look. Regardless, you can definitely stop questioning yourself “can I really wear this out?” The answer is hell yes.

Shift Dresses

 
One of the biggest trends to hit the 60s was the iconic shift dress. Short, boxy, and great for showing off your pins shift dresses are great for the warmer months. Style shift dresses with your cutest pair of shoes and a mini bag for a more retro feel or add trainers for a modern edge. Below are some of our favourite shift dresses!

Maxi Dresses

 
Nothing screams ethereal and floaty like a maxi dress! Great for casual settings like the beach or late night dinner with your besties, maxi dresses always seem like you’re more dressed up than you are! If you’re feeling lazy, pair maxi dresses with some cute sandals, wide brim hat and big sunglasses. If you’re feeling a little more fancy, chuck on a load of chunky jewellery and your pair of highest heels.

Low key funny but high key great, the towel dress is the ULTIMATE beach dress. Reminiscent of early 2000’s housewives and starlets alike the towel dress holds much productivity as well as style.

Midi Dresses

 
Sister to the maxi dress, the midi provides a little bit more room to breathe and has a flattering cut off point for all those who decide to rock them. We love to style our midi dresses with loafers, white socks and a crossbody bag for a more updated 50s look!
